In this part of Luke 19 Jesus gives a parable about a great man who goes away but leaves his citizens with some responsibilities. It says how the citizens hated their leader, but no fault was listed against him. The people just wanted to rule themselves. How much does this story relate to us?! Some of the people he left with responsibility used it for his glory in small and big ways. but the parable lists a man that wasted the great man’s money, or talent. In the end, when the great man returned that man was punished severely.


Every parable Jesus has ever given has been relatable enough for us to find ourselves in it. Some questions for today; are you waiting expectantly for Jesus’s return? Are you living your life with purpose, and seeking to bring Him glory in whatever situation you are in? Pray that God reveals His purpose for your life, and that your love for Him is renewed.
